tv   CBS This Morning  CBS  April 6, 2012 7:00am-9:00am EDT

7:00 am
good morning. it is friday april 6, 2012. welcome to studio 57 at the cbs broadcast center. i'm charlie rose. an audiotape surfaces in the nfl bount controversyy controversy. i'm gayle king. george zimmerman's lawyers are here today to explain why he shouldn't be arrested for the shooting of trayvon martin. no one has stepped forward except a maryland woman but is she telling the truth? first, as we do every morning, we begin with a look at today's "eye opener," your world in 90 seconds.
7:01 am
locker room sheds new light on the bounty program. >> gregg williams telling his team to hurt other players. >> little wide receive number 32, put a [ bleep ] on him. >> says single singled out alex smith and that he rubbed his fingers together like this saying -- >> i got it first. our economy has begun to turn a corner. >> the white house looks for a breakthrough in today's jobs report. >> economists are expecting the economy added more than 200,000 jobs last month. the unemployment rate is expected to hold steady at 8 bth 3%. a military board says a marine should be dismissed for criticizing president obama on his facebook page. the u.s. coast guard has open fire on a japanese ship that was washed across the pacific after the tsunami last & year. we're getting a look at gsa
7:02 am
workers making a mockery at a waste of your taxpayers dollars. >> not only a million dollars of our money in vegas, they blew it on lame [ bleep ]. all that -- >> there he is bill murray. >> -- and all that matters -- >> you're standing -- he made a mistake and you can't admit it. >> -- on "cbs this morning." >> happy easter. >> thank you very much. it's coming up the bunny. >> i don't understand the tradition of hunting for eggs on easter. was jesus like, hey, i'm going to be gone tore a few days but when i get back i better not find any eggs laying around. make sure they're all picked up. captioning funded by cbs welcome to "cbs this morning." just as the nfl was hoping to put the bounty scandal behind it, a new audiotape has surfaced that shows just how brutal this
7:03 am
really is. >> for the first time we hear the central figure in this scandal, gregg william telling his players to go out on the field and hurt opposing players. armen keteyian has been reporting on this story since the beginning. he's with us for the latest. >> good morning erica. good morning, charlie. roger goodell hears appeals shurs of new orleans saints head coach sean payton suspended for all of next season and two members of the saints program. at the end of the day, it was former saints' defensive coordinator gregg will yamdiams, the architect of the plan who spoke the loudest. >> it is little 32 -- >> reporter: in an edited audiotape posted on this website, williams under indefinite suspension by the league, gives a profanity-laced speech to his players. it came on the eve of the loss to the 49ers last january. in it williams appears to target specific body parts of several 49ers for injury including
7:04 am
running back frank gore's head. >> we decide how many times we can beat frank gore's head. >> reporter: tight end vernon davis' ankle. >> we need to decide how many times we can bull rush and we can [ bleep ] put vernon davis's ankle. >> reporter: crabtree's already damaged knee ligament. and wide receive kyle williams recovering from multiple concussions. >> that little wide receive number 10, about his concussion, we need to [ bleep ] put a lick on him right now. >> reporter: the audio surfaced on the site of sean pamphilon who was filming a documentary. yesterday pamphilon issued a statement that said in part, some will call me releasing this audio for fame or money grab. people of character and conscience will call it what it is, true.
7:05 am
williams is a former head coach in buffalo and feared defensive coordinator for washington and tennessee, but loved by his players for his fiery take no prisoners attitude. he has since apologized for his role in the saints' bounty scheme which ran the last three seasons. he's had no comment on the tape which sparked strong reaction around the league including some alleged targets. >> when you start to talk about the intention of players to get the big hit, to knock guys out, to take guys out on a stretcher, to attack what may be considered a weakness of a player or where they've been injured before i think that's where this whole thing crosses a line. >> this speech came right before williams' final game in the league and seven weeks before the bounty scandal broke. we spoke to the nfl yesterday and the league declined to comment on a tape. as we said charlie, gregg williams is not talking at this moment. >> thank you. joining us james brown of cbs sports. j.b., good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> as armen said to me anybody
7:06 am
would be naive, naive not to understand that this kind of conversation takes place at football and especially professional football is a violent game. but the level of specificity here is astounding. what will it do? >> well, charlie, it is to me as well. look, it will be a black eye for this week. it will be a black eye for much longer if it is determined and deemed to be widespread throughout the nfl. charlie, i have not found any evidence -- and i've been covering the game for a long time talked to quite a few people, know them well -- i have yet to find anybody who would say this is widespread. it's brazen. it's without regard for people's health, trying to end someone's career when you talk specifically about taking their acl out, talking about someone who was concussed and banging the head in the pile after the whistle stopped. that kind of stuff. each catches those who play the
7:07 am
game by surprise. >> with it being on tape, what impact do you think it will have? >> in my estimation charlie, it's certainly not going to help. that's an understatement. gregg williams in terms of his appeal yes, he's been suspended indefinitely. it will be reviewed at the end of the season to determine whether he can come back. charlie, there's little if any possibility of him coming back into the league because this is damming in terms of the spes tisty and the vulgarity. locker room speeches are not the thing of church sermon that we understand. when you talk about injury canning a guys career physically maiming that way, that does cross the line. >> in light of the new audio, we know these meetings were held yesterday, do you see the nfl taking any further action or making any further changes? >> air kashgs good question. i don't see the penalties being added to if you will made more severe in terms of what's already been handed down. from my perspective, erica, i
7:08 am
think that the appeal by sean payton, head coach to try to lesson it, joe vitt as well. i don't think that's going to happen. i think it's to buy some time to help the new orleans saints through this time to replace sean payton as head coach but i don't think it will have any impact in terms of the penalties that have already been handed down. >> are possibilities here for criminal charges or civil liability? >> charlie that's a real concern. yes, there is that possibility. i think you heard kenny williams, general manager of the chicago white sox, commenting about his son who, of course plays with the san francisco 49ers who was targeted, mentioning this is a litigous matter. i wouldn't be surprised if that's not forthcoming at all, charlie. >> thank you. turning to the monthly unemployment report comes this morning and could give us a sense of how the recovery is going. >> rebecca jarvis is here with
7:09 am
more. what are we expecting today? >> economists are expecting the recovery is on track. fewer jobs were added in march than february but jobs were added to the tune of about 200,000. that's actually something we've seen now for four straight months. it won't necessarily amount to a lower unemployment rate. we're thinking it may be somewhere in the range of 8.3% as of the march report. that really is about 3% higher than where you would want to see the unemployment rate in the best, in the normal circumstances. now, there have been some very much improving signs in the economy. if you look at consumer confidence, for example, we as the consumer account for 70% of the economy. we are more confident now than we've been in about two years. that has helped add itself to increasing retail sales overall. in addition to that we've seen more and more people going out and buying cars. this is something that is very interesting in an environment where you have gasoline prices near $4 a gallon across the country. people are buying some of the cars that are more
7:10 am
fuel-efficient that's been helping things, but overall, we're buying more consuming more and there are two real things economists look to and say, well if things were to go in a more negative direction, what would they be? gasoline prices going up over the summer and in addition to that europe, because there is major economic weakness there. it's a very large economy in the world picture and it could impact us down the road erica. >> still focusing on that as well. thanks. in the presidential race rick santorum met with conservative leaders on thursday to decide his next move. he is under growing pressure to quit the race after mitt romney won all three republican primaries on tuesday. >> meanwhile, president obama is reaching out to an important bloc of voters women. bill plante is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. the white house is holding a forum on women and the economy. they want to contrast the president's record with that of his republican challengers just as the gender gap seems to be growing. >> there's at least an 18-point
7:11 am
gender gap. >> democrats want to make the gender gap. >> there can be a large gender gap. >> reporter: the gender gap, it's the latest political buzz and the talk of cable news. whichever republican candidate president obama faces starts behind with one of the most important groups women. the white house is clear of the gender advantage but says that has nothing to do with today's forum on women and the economy. >> there are a number of issues important with regard to recommend in the economy, women's safety women and education. >> reporter: republicans on the other hand see a political calculation that worked. >> if the democrats said we had a war on caterpillars and every main stream media outlet talked about the fact that republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we'd have a problem with cater pillars. >> reporter: the latest poll shows president obama leading
7:12 am
governor romney by women voters in 12 important swing states. why now? a decision to pull funding to planned parenthood sparked a conversation. there was a controversy surrounding women's access to contraception under the president's health care bill but this agreement seen privately by the white house as helping bolster the president's standing with women. publicly the president's spokesman insists nothing political going on around here, which led to this exchange at thursday's briefing. >> reporter: when are you having a men's conference on the economy? >> well, stay tuned. >> reporter: men's conference. don't look for that any time soon. the president has taken every opportunity lately to show that he cares about women. the white house was ready yesterday when the president was asked about the controversy over women -- over whether women should be admitted as members at augusta national. the president commented it's long past time when women should
7:13 am
be admitted. >> thank you very much. nearly six weeks after the killing of trayvon martin protests are still going on. demonstrators marched in florida yesterday kaelg calling for the rest of george zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot martin. >> now zimmerman's attorneys say it's time to listen to their side of the story. they're both with us this morning. good morning. >> good morning. which side of the story should we hear? >> i think part of the story we should hear is that -- we've heard the rest of judgment story, that started with johnnie cochran and o.j. simpson case. it's an example here. this case had momentum created by a lot of misinformation. one example, without taking too much exception, the picture right here looks like about a 12-year-old boy instead of a 6 '3" 7-year-old varsity football player who got into a confrontation with somebody 6 inches shorter than him. >> tell me what it is mr. zimmerman has told you that we should know about the events of that night.
7:14 am
>> i think mr. zimmerman told us it's pretty much out there. his brother and father have both told everyone what he said happened. the short version of that is he didn't do any -- he didn't commit any crime. he was where he was allowed to be, not committing a crime, confront the by someone else who started the violent confrontation physically. he was attacked, broke his nose hit his head into the ground and he defended himself. that's not against the law. >> and the florida law also there are various interpretations of it. you will argue that there was nothing that he did that was a violation of the law. should he have been arrested? >> that is correct. we would be arguing on the stand your ground statue. >> and that amount of force that he used was appropriate? >> yes. in the case -- this is based on what's been released so far is that there was an encounter, trayvon martin took george zimmerman down punched him in the nose breaking his nose.
7:15 am
was hitting his head on the ground. and screaming for help. and there was a gun, george zimmerman was armed and one shot fired. >> does mr. zimmerman have any regret over the death of trayvon martin? does he understand the feelings of the people who have lost not only a son but more. >> i don't want to comment on that until everything is resolved on this case. i think that -- i would like for the public to take a step back. everyone's rushed to judgment. he's been convicted in the public media. let's step back. there are rules of evidence rules of law. all the evidence will eventually come out. right now our hands are tied because the prosecution is still investigating this case. so, we're limited as to what we can talk about. >> but a question of his own fieldings about this incident, you're not limited to talk about that. >> i feel that i am in this case at this time. i want him to be able to come out and say for himself.
7:16 am
and i want to hold back on giving any comments until we've resolved the case. >> in terms of him coming out and speaking it's been wildly reported you've said that he's in hiding. as i understand it you haven't even met with him face to face you've only spoken on the phone? >> that's correct. yeah, there are so many threats on him right now you know law enforcement agrees with him staying in hiding. i think there have been allegations that he's -- where is he come turn himself in. from day one, of course. and that's true with anybody i represent. if there's a warrant for their arrest i have to advise them to turn themselves in. >> anything you would gain in terms of sitting down and talking to him face to face? >> we're certainly going to do that. we're going to do that fairly soon, as a matter of fact. one of the points people have said, the force was too much even if he broke his nose and slammed his head into the ground. many people remember the case of liam neeson's wife fell on a ski slope, hit her head on the
7:17 am
ground and died. the shaken baby syndrome, the brain shaking around in the skull, you can die. when someone is pounding your head on the ground you've already had your nose broken you have great fear and if you think you're go-b to be injured or lose your life you're absolutely entitled to -- >> that's what mr. zimmerman said, he was in fear of losing his life? >> i can tell you that's exactly what he thought. >> tell us where this case goes next. >> procedurally angela corey, elected state attorney in duval county has been assigned by the governor to undertake the investigation. she'll take her time. she'll make a decision whether or not to take it to a grand jury. if she takes it to a grand jury then at loews 12 members of the grand jury would are to vote for either an indictment or what's called a no true bill which is
7:18 am
to say, wow f you look at all the evidence now instead of just listening to the loudest voice in the crowd, it really was not a crime. >> i'm glad you're here. thank you for coming. time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. the san diego union tribune reports a marine sergeant is in trouble for calling president obama an enemy on facebook. a military panel at camp pendleton recommended last night that sergeant gary stein be expelled from the corps. >> "the chicago tribune" reports the enpsych clowe peed yeah britainnnica is making a comeback. after 244 years the printed version was being discontinued but the recent announcement turned it into a best seller. fewer than 800 remain. a little nostalgia fueling that.

i saw a girl laying in the rocks, face-down. her shoes had been knocked off. >> reporter: on october 20 2009, police say 20-year-old college student noor almalaki was run over by her own father. >> this was never a who done it. it never was. the mystery is why? >> reporter: peoria arizona, detective chris boughey believed noor was the victim of a honor killing, a premeditated killing to preserve family honor. >> in certain traditions and certain cultures if a father believes that a female has acted in a dishonorable or disrespectful way, the only way to restore that honor is to kill them. >> reporter: writer ab bail pesta says noor's iraqi immigrant parents felt she had become too westernized and independent. >> she had a foot in two worlds. one foot in suburban america and one foot in middle eastern
8:02 am
tradition. in public she tried to put on a brave face, live her life and enjoy the freedoms america offered her. in private, she fought with her father all the time. >> reporter: but at his trial, noor's father claimed his daughter's death was a tragic accident. would a jury believe him? >> you're always concerned. you prepare as well as you can but there's always that tinge of uncertainty. you never know. >> troy roberts joins us now. whenever we hear about this it's so inconceivable to us in this country, especially that your father or your mother, the person who you think will protected you always will ultimately be the one that could take your life. >> it's so tragic. this is such a lovely lovely young woman. >> that can you tell us about her? >> she was -- she wanted to enjoy the freedoms that all american kids want to enjoy. and her father believed he was losing control over her. she was wearing western
8:03 am
clothing. they tried -- they forced her into a marriage. she left that man. and she lived with a boyfriend for a period of time. that just enraged her father. it just went downhill from there. >> there were warning signs here? >> there were warning signs. i mean he had told noor's boyfriend that she had dishonored the family. that she was a disgrace. but no one believed he would actually carry out this crime. >> this is something that you covered, did you some reporting on this in jordan but this is something we rarely hear about here in the united states. as gayle pointed out, it's inconceivable in our culture that a parent could do something like this to a child. >> yes. you know what it's not only difficult to get hard numbers on how great this problem is in this country because a lot of these incidents occur in tight-knit communities. i did do a story in iman
8:04 am
jordan. i interviewed this man and it was chilling because he was so dispassionate. his 16-year-old sister was raped. and after the assault she was marked by death for her family members. she went to the police. asked to be placed in protective custody. was basically a jail cell. she was there for three months. her father came to the prison and signed a release, no harm will come to her. three hours after she walked out of the prison her own brother pushed four bullets into her head. he told me this story and he was so dispassionate. he was celebrated. he only served two weeks in jail for this. >> that's the thing. family members seem to celebrate i you carry out the honor killing. was that the case in this story? >> yes yes, he was celebrated because he brought honor back to the family. you know, again, i was telling you, it's hard to get the real numbers. the u.n. believes worldwide about 5,000 women and young girls were killed last year
8:05 am
1,000 in pakistan alone. >> i heard about all those stories. this is the first time i've heard about a story like this in america. >> yeah. >> troy, good to have you with us. your full report will air "a family's honor" tomorrow night on "48 hours mystery" right here good morning, it is a great opening day. look at the sun on camden yards, clear skies now and then again through this day. we are going to look for a high temperature in the low 60s, it is the low 40s right now, sunny but breezy this afternoon. tomorrow we continue that, clear, 36 over jamie lee curtis has done it all in hollywood. now she's returning to the hit tv show "ncis" as dr. samantha ryan. her fans like that. jamie lee is here in the green
